For those on hold, do they wait till the end of interviews in April before making decisions? (I actually have an interview at the end of March)

Hi, this is just to let you know that I received an acceptance letter from OHSU this week (I was away M-thursday so don't know exact date). I applied to the MD/MPH program, looks like I am on hold for that, but am accepted for the MD program. I interviewed Jan 5, I think. I plan to go elsewhere and am withdrawing, but I know people are wondering what is happening, so wanted to lets folks know. I think OHSU is a great school, and I wish you all the best! Feel free to PM me or post questions here if you want addl details about the letter.

AMBS- i interviewed on february 15th and got the letter about five weeks to the day saying i was in the hold category.

Cheerful- were you put in the hold category first for the MD program or were you accepted after 2.5 month wait? congrats on your acceptance even though you're headed elsewhere!

maybe I wasn't put on hold first b/c I am out of state? Or maybe because of applying for the MD/MPH? Note that the letter says I am NOW on hold for the MD/MPH program, but goes on to stress that I have a spot in the MD program regardless of the outcome of the MD/MPH appllication.

The only thing I received in the 2.5 mos was the Dr. Stull "all of these things might happen with your MD/MPH app" email that others have discusssed on tho this thread, and a financial aid app that clearly stated it was no indication of my acceptance status.

Hope this all helps. Thanks for the congrats!

The MPH program is reducing the number of new students for next year.

I got the same letter Cheerful got this week. I'd e-mailed Dr. Stull a couple of weeks ago to see what was going on, and he'd said that the office was a little behind and that the person who handles sending out accept/reject/hold letters had been out of the office for more than a week with a sick kid. She's back now, so hopefully all of you who are still waiting will be getting letters soon too! :luck:

Have you decided where you're going to go?

I interviewed at OHSU on 3.3, and I really liked it. Do you guys think it would help to send in a letter of interest?

Of the schools I've been accepted at, OHSU is my top choice. I'm on the waitlist at GWU, Duke, and Mayo, though, and I think I'd prefer any of those.

As for a letter of interest, I don't see how it could hurt. I believe they offer most acceptances in April, so don't lose hope yet!
